What do MBA grads do at tech firms? The data on any B-School's website says that consulting pays more than tech to MBA grads, however, going by the threads on this app, it seems as if tech pays more. Does the website data not include RSUs? Or does consulting actually pay more? Thanks a lot for your time and effort!

Veteran | MBA candidate looking to pivot into D&I strategy. Thoughts on general HR vs diversity recruiting?
Thoughts on JD/MBA?’
Question for the group. I am an experienced individual currently searching to get out of private and into public. I am a CFE and Certified Technology Business Management Executive (CTBME) with an MBA and am scheduled to take AUD of CPA on May 13th.

I really enjoy project work as the monthly grind has worn very, very thin. Opinions?

Has anyone gotten approved for Delta’s Reclaim My Status program? What documentation did you provide?
Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

Manager after 3 years at Accenture Strategy, which I joined out of Uni. Which title am I likely to get if transitioning at MBB?
I think I’m burnt out from my current company. I’ve been completely unmotivated in my professional and personal life.

I would love to enter into the DEI space and have tried to get involved in extra DEI related activities to help as I apply for roles in this space, but would be open to any pointers if anyone has any on how to pivot my career?
